During this time of social distancing and staying #HealthAtHome, the Fayette County Democratic Party wanted to make sure you had the opportunity to hear from the candidates running in this year’s primary.  We think it’s important for you to hear from the folks running to represent our party on the ballot this November.

In April, we asked Democrats in Lexington to submit questions for these primary candidates. Thank you to everyone who submitted!

On this page below, you will find videos of our primary candidates answering those questions. Primary candidates are listed in alphabetical order for each of the following contested races: US Senate, Congress (6th District), KY House (45th & 56th Districts), and LFUCG Council (3rd and 9th Districts).  Don’t know what districts you live in?  You can find out on THIS PAGE of the Fayette County Clerk’s website.

PLEASE NOTE: We invited all primary candidates who had previously provided information with the county party. Those featured below are the candidates that chose to participate. For a list of all Democrats currently running for office, please visit our Candidates Page.
